Marion Küpker, Submission to the criminal trial for trespassing and property damage on and in the Büchel air base, or against the Federal Government’s actions contrary to international law, and their violation of my / our right to life and physical integrity.
District Court of Cochem, June 10, 2020
Dear Mr. Richter Zimmermann, Mr. Prosecutor XXX ,
Dear process observers
I would like to present here in court my personal background and actions regarding my 40 years of work against nuclear weapons that led to this indictment. You may remember Mr. Richter and Mr. Public Prosecutor how old you were in 1980. In it I will get involved in the following points, submit documents as evidence and also submit requests for evidence.
- my personal background
- the legal aspects:
– The fulfillment of justifying an emergency intervention by historical and current threats of nuclear disasters
– The obligation of an individual citizen to comply with international law
– The obligation of state power to protect the inviolable rights to safety, to life, and physical integrity under Article 1 of the Basic Law
- my judgment wishes to the judge
1: My personal background
My “nuclear family”
I was born in 1964 in Hamburg by quite young, 19-year-old parents — a supermarket cashier at the time and a gas station attendant. There followed three brothers, the latter two from my stepfather, who entered our lives in my second year. He studied economics and became an insurance clerk/broker.
My parents were shaped by the traumatization of their own family of origin in World War II and their education, the so-called black pedagogy (black pedagogy means an education in which, for example, the cries of the baby for food and closeness are deliberately ignored and fixed times are set for this in order to break the baby’s will and basic trust from the beginning. This instills obedience in the sub-consciousness, and creates obedient beings/subjects, since the basic trust is destroyed).
– My maternal grandmother experienced the Hamburg fire storm of 1943, while my grandfather served with the Wehrmacht in Austria. My grandmother on the stepfather’s side became a war widow with two small children at a young age, and about 6 million men never came back from the war. She remained single. My stepfather was tormented by the death of his own father — as well as his two uncles, experienced in Russia — as to how this “flock of sheep” obedience became possible in Hitler fascism. Both of my families of origin were perpetrators and victims in the war and were politically strongly anti-Communist Social Democrats in post-war Germany.
My anti-nuclear family
At the high school in the early 1980s, many of the new younger teachers — who were influenced by the extra—parliamentary student movement/opposition to the Vietnam War (APO) in post-war Germany — taught us. When I was 15 I gave two papers in geography:
1) For the disposal of radioactive waste in the North Sea and in the Mediterranean; and 2) the pesticide load in the Baltic Sea (rain washes out the fields and the resulting pesticide discharges through the rivers into the Baltic Sea).
Up to 1993, over 100,000 tons of radioactive was dumped into the world’s oceans, where isotopes — like plutonium — can now be measured in water samples. Germany, for example, loaded over 480 barrels of radioactive waste from the Karlsruhe Nuclear Research Center in Emden in May 1967 and disposed of them off the Portuguese coast in the Atlantic:

My physics and politics teacher informed us about the necessity of civilian use of atomic energy for the construction of atomic bombs. In history, we learned that Hitler was already creating atomic bombs, but the United States was ahead of him, and it was only thanks to the timely end of the war that the first atomic bomb was not dropped on Berlin. According to the fathers of the US atomic bomb, Enrico Fermi and Robert Oppenheimer, in the event that Hitler was faster with atomic bomb construction, the United States intended to poison Germany’s food which would be attacked and contaminated with the radioactive isotope strontium-90, killing at least half a million people in 1943. In other words, before the first atomic bomb was built, the US government was already aware of the dangers of low-level radiation when ingesting fission products with food. Hundreds of radioactive fission products are released in the event of atomic bomb explosions.
